Mom’s colorful Pongal Kolam (included red, green and blue) drawn for the harvesting festival – Pongal! Kolam or Rangoli is a pattern drawn (in different forms) in front of the houses, which is a traditional custom followed by the people of India esp. the Kolam is a cultural identity of Tamil people and drawing colorful Kolam in front of the home is considered as auspicious and a sign of welcome during the festival seasons and events.

The design on the road is wonderful. Your mom did a great job on this. It is an interesting custom of which I have never heard of before now. I bet the festival is a fun time for everyone and is very colorful too.
